I was working as a full-time Mathematics teacher in California but moved to Ohio and am looking for jobs tutoring students as I enjoy working with students. I have a degree in Mathematics and have taught Pre-Algebra, Pre-Algebra Support, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I was approved to teach up to Calculus in California.

I have experience teaching students who struggle with math. I worked 3.5 years in the California Public School System and before that was a tutor in college for 2.5 years. I like working one-on-one with students and look forward to working with them.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

I have a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and have taught and tutored many other subjects. I had to take this class in college and did well in it and helped other students who did not understand. To approach tutoring in this subject, I would make sure students know the prior knowledge required and see which concepts are difficult for them and focus on those.

Great Tutoring Experience — Olivia was a great math tutor for my daughter. Olivia was very helpful and patient as she provided my daughter with guidance on how to complete the math portion of the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT). She had my daughter take a practice test to gauge her knowledge of the subject and quickly realized she needed to take her back to the foundation as a starting point. On average, each tutoring session las ...
